Big Boi – “In The A” (Feat. T.I. & Ludacris) Video

The bangingest banger from Big Boi’s recent album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors is “In The A,” the Atlanta superstar summit that also features on-fire turns from T.I. and Ludacris.

T.I. – “Sorry” (Feat. André 3000)

André 3000 barely ever raps anymore, but he has a rare knack for showing up two or three times a year and melting your entire brain. Case in point: “Sorry,” an absolutely gorgeous new six-minute song with T.I., from Tip’s new Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head album. It’s an excellent song before André eve… More »

T.I. – “Go Get It” Video

In his new video for the low-key trunk-rattler “Go Get It,” deposed and frequently-incarcerated rap king T.I. remains obsessed with the idea that he’s simultaneously a street kid and an unbelievably rich guy. Maybe you just get that psychological split when you’re a rich guy who can’t stop going to jail. In any case, AlexMore »

From T.I. To TNGHT: A Look At Trap Rave

Do a search for “trap” on SoundCloud and you’ll find more than 500 tracks uploaded with the tag in the last three days. What’s interesting, though, are the labels that show up with the most frequency in the similar tags section: “bass,” “club,” “dance,” “dj,” “dubstep,” and “electronic” appear right below the expected “rap,” “hip-hop,”… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week for videos just fucking absolutely ruled, so before we get into what made this list, let’s take a moment for all the videos that missed the cut. Among the casualties: Two eye-grabbing clips for A-list indie anthems, a mind-warping and visually sumptuous CocoRosie clip, a great bare-bones performance video, a legitimately funny minute-longMore »

Killer Mike – “Big Beast” Video (Feat. T.I., Bun B & Trouble) (NSFW)

Well, this morning just got significantly more awesome. “Big Beast,” the ridiculously badass all-star first single from Killer Mike’s excellent El-P-produced new album R.A.P. Music, has a nine-minute new video, and holy shit is it ever awesome. The clip features a Steven Seagal-style foiled convenience-store robbery, an entrail feast, an old-school car chase, Troma-esque gore,… More »

Freddie Gibbs – “Pull Up” (Feat. Young Jeezy & T.I.)

As someone who’s been watching fast-rapping Indiana street-rap hope Freddie Gibbs for the fast few years, it’s great to see him reach the point of his career where he’s teaming up with actual rap superstars. On the new “Pull Up,” he trades bars with new label boss Young Jeezy and fellow Atlanta fixture T.I., absolutely… More »

T.I. – “Fuck Da City Up” Video (Feat. Young Jeezy)

T.I. released his pretty great Fuck Da City Up mixtape at the very beginning of the year, and one of its finest tracks was the title joint, a chaotic collab with fellow Atlanta rap overlord Young Jeezy. In the song’s brand-new video, both of them stomp around an Atlanta that’s been made to look apocalyptic… More »

Killer Mike – “Big Beast” (Feat. Bun B, T.I. & Trouble) (Prod. El-P)

For a long time now, we’ve heard rumblings about a new collaborative album from badass Atlanta rap snarler Killer Mike and New York skronk-rap king El-P. This morning, we get confirmation that it exists. El produced all of the new joint R.A.P. Music. (That title stands for Rebellious African People’s Music. Sure, fine.)… More »

Download T.I. Fuck Da City Up Mixtape

Not the only Southern rapper striving to regain his former stature, T.I. dropped a mixtape on New Year’s Day, teeming with firepower from the likes of Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Too Short, Dr. Dre and Jeezy as well as production credits from Just Blaze and Mannie Fresh.

T.I. – “Here Ye, Hear Ye” Video (Feat. Pharrell)

T.I.’s rumbling, horn-soaked banger “Here Ye, Hear Ye” has a video now, and Jesus Christ, remember how nasty Pharrell’s verse on this thing was? Well, it’s still nasty, and Pharrell looks cool as fuck lip-syncing it; his “arthritic fingers” gesture is the single best moment here. For the most part, it’s an extremely simple ra… More »

T.I. – “Pyro”

For the first time since his most recent prison release, T.I. finally sounds absolutely comfortable and effortless on new track “Pyro.” The song is a club track with a ridiculously catchy beat from Two Band Geeks, and T.I. talks about fucking a lot and namechecks a few reasonably priced sedans. Recession rap! Listen below. More »

Young Jeezy – “I Do” (Feat Jay-Z & André 3000) & “F.A.M.E.” (Feat. T.I.) Video

Jeezy called in some favors for this one! For his sound-drenched track “I Do,” the once-dominant Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy managed to wrangle guest verses from two of rap’s biggest names, Jay-Z and OutKast’s André 3000; I honestly can’t remember the last time those two rapped on the same song. Did they ever? They must’ve… More »

T.I. – “She Will” (Remix)

T.I.’s been on a bit of a roll since getting out of prison a few months ago, and it’s been fun to watch him go. For his latest trick, he’s added a verse to the Lil Wayne/Drake collab “She Will” — something he already did to Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Niggas In Paris.” On hi… More »

T.I. – “I’m Flexin'” Video (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

Even though he produced the track, Mississippi MC Big K.R.I.T.’s vocals barely appear on “I’m Flexin’,” the strong new comeback single from the just-out-of-jail T.I. So it’s cool to see that T.I. has granted K.R.I.T. a ton of camera time in Motion Family’s video for the track. Too bad that K.R.I.T. looks way, way too… More »

Yelawolf – “Hard White (Remix)” (Feat. T.I. & Slaughterhouse)

For the remix of his rabid club banger “Hard White,” redneck rap hero Yelawolf has recruited five guys who, like him, can rap really, really quickly: Finally-free Atlanta monarch T.I. and the four members of disgruntled-B-lister supergroup Slaughterhouse. Every last guy on the remix goes in hard, even Joe Budden, and it’s a joy to… More »

T.I. – “Here Ye, Hear Ye” (Feat. Pharrell)

T.I. has been making some good music since his latest prison release, but he hasn’t given us another certified banger until now. “Here Ye, Hear Ye” is pretty much exactly what the world needs to hear from Tip: Hard-ass chorus-free regal talk over a slow-rolling, horn-drenched head-nodder of a beat. There’s also a long and… More »
